Phillips, 1939 / MET Museum NYC; The clawlike structure of the enormous wave that threatens to crash down upon the three fishing boats conjures up images of mythical dragons and other dangerous beasts. The drama of the print is enhanced by the placement of Fuji in the hollow of the wave's angry crest. Like the helpless boats, Fuji too appears on the verge of obliteration.; Signature: Hokusai aratame Iitsu fude Marking: None
